The monuments and alpine scenery of Salzburg's UNESCO World Heritage Site lie just over the border from Munich in Bavaria. This tour ensures you maximize your time with round-trip transport by train, a guided walking tour of the city, and plenty of free time for shopping and sightseeing.
What to Expect
Meet your guide and up to 15 people at Munich’s Central Train Station. Then travel aboard an air-conditioned train, enjoying views of the Bavarian Alps and Austrian countryside on a 2-hour journey to Salzburg.

On a 1.5-hour walking tour, listen to your guide’s comprehensive introduction to the city. Discover Old Town, a UNESCO-listed site; admire historic landmarks, such as the Domkirche Cathedral and the Hohensalzburg Fortress (Festung Hohensalzburg); and learn more about Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who was born in Salzburg, and The Sound of Music, which was filmed in and around the city.

After the tour, spend around three hours exploring independently. Stroll around Old Town’s medieval lanes and browse the shops for souvenirs, sample traditional Austrian cuisine with lunch at a local restaurant (own expense), visit Mirabell Palace, or climb the hilltop to take in the views from the castle.

Your tour ends back at the Munich train station.

Beautiful Trip

We truly enjoyed our tour to Salzburg led by Susan. She was incredibly kind and informative. We were given a tour upon reaching Salzburg, and then had a few hours on our own. We are very glad that we had this opportunity.

Salzburg is a nice city to walk around. We only made a day trip there. Should go up to the viewing top to have a clear view of the city.

Hello! Yes it is easy because the tour operator company, in our case Radius Tours has a little office right there. I believe it was between tracks 32-34. Many groups leave in the morning, you will not miss it. The Hotel we... More
